"Allianz SE (ALV.XE), Europe's largest primary insurer by gross premiums, said Friday it is suspending business in Iran amid calls for tighter sanctions against the country after the International Atomic Energy Agency censured Tehran for its nuclear enrichment program.

'Allianz has decided not to renew insurance treaty business in Iran because of political developments in the region. This business amounts to negligible premiums,' Allianz said in a statement, without being more specific."
